A large international conference on Advances in Electrical Engineering and Computational Science was held in London, U.K., July 2-4, 2008, under the World Congress on Engineering (WCE 2008). The WCE 2008 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), with congress details available at: http://www.iaeng.org/WCE2008. IAENG is a non-profit international association for the engineers and the computer scientists, which was found originally in 1968. There have been more than one thousand manuscript submissions for the WCE 2008.
Advances in Electrical Engineering and Computational Science contains sixty-one revised and extended research articles written by prominent researchers participating in the conference. Topics covered include Control Engineering, Network Management, Wireless Networks, Biotechnology, Signal Processing, Computational Intelligence, Computational Statistics, Internet Computing, High Performance Computing, and industrial applications. Advances in Electrical Engineering and Computational Science will offer the state of art of tremendous advances in electrical engineering and computational science and also serve as an excellent reference work for researchers and graduate students working with/on electrical engineering and computational science.
